If you’re looking for a unique holiday experience that will bond you as a family as you gently cruise through beautiful countryside and past historic landmarks then look no further. Larkspur canal boat is waiting to be taken for an adventure.
Moored in the sleepy village of Bathampton, just a stone’s throw from the city of Bath, Larkspur is a traditional wide beam canal boat with modern fixtures and fittings to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is a surprising amount of interior space which makes sleeping, cooking and playing games fun as opposed to chaotic, and the surrounding landscape is there to be explored at your own pace. Eco-friendly, people-friendly and duck-friendly – what more could you want?
The boat is moored in the village of Bathampton near The George Inn, St Nicholas’s church and the Boat Café. This stretch of river is part of the Kennet and Avon canal route and there are lots of wonderful places to see on your travels east – Dundas Aqueduct, Bradford-on-Avon, Devizes and Honey Street to name but a few. You could also head the short distance back west towards Bath, home to shops, restaurants, bars and historic architecture galore.
The boat is based in Bathampton and operates from a private leisure mooring where guests will park and be greeted.

The boat has two bedrooms – a double and a twin – as well as a sofa bed in the lounge. There is a family bathroom and a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, and there is also plenty of wardrobe and storage space as well as a wood burner to keep you cosy.
The main bedroom opens out onto a seating area at the front of the boat and there is also plenty of room for people to sit at the back of the boat. The kitchen area even features a ‘duck hatch’!
Larkspur is moored in an ‘off-grid’ fashion – it generates its own electricity through sunlight and it powers its engine to charge its batteries. You can charge phones and iPads etc but you will need to use the hairdryers provided.
